The Kansas City Royals are road favorites in this spot against Randy Dobnak and the Minnesota Twins, and it will be interesting to see if they justify favoritism here, as the Minnesota Twins look to get their season back on track.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have been doing well as of late, but did drop their last two games against the Tampa Bay Rays who are a real story in the AL East at the moment, so the Royals had some awfully tough competition there and you would think this is an easier spot for them, as the Twins do not play the same type of fundamentally sound baseball that the Rays do.
First basemen Carlos Santana has been coming on in recent times hitting 10 home runs and 32 RBI and he is not the only one playing better with guys like Merrifield and Perez playing solidly. The batting lineup as a whole ranks low-middle in terms of offensive stats like OBP and batting average and they have struck a nice balance between hitting and pitching, as their pitching unit ranks mostly in the top half of the league.
Kris Bubic, who enters the game with a nice 1.52 ERA, needed to work hard in his last start against the Tigers going 5 decent innings, but this Twins batting lineup is much stronger then the one he faced off against with Detroit, so he will need to bring his best stuff in order to be successful here.
The Twins have been downright awful this season, but they do have the overall roster to turn this around, and there are already plenty of signs that they are in the process of doing just that, as this team is on a 4 game winning streak and has won 6 of it’s last 7 contests.
Minnesota has dug themselves quite the hole early on this year, so they will need to keep up a solid pace up to the All-Star game to ensure they have a chance at making the playoffs come September.
Rnady Dobnak is getting the start here, and he is a guy who started out last year on fire, but every advanced metric suggested that he wasn’t pitching all that well and we can now see those statistics were at least partially correct, as Dobnak enters this matchup with a 5.75 ERA.
